    It was ok

    The room was ok, no microwave and the fridge did not get cold, they brought another fridge and plugged it in the hallway, the swimming pool is mostly shadowed and has a view of the old boarded up building, the restaurant isn’t open and there is no vending machine, good location staff is friendly

    In general, a clean and comfortable place to stay. If you are inclined to wear makeup, be warned that the makeup and bathroom mirrors are not very accessible. Folks under 5'8" and anyone without perfect eyesight may have trouble using the lighted makeup mirror. The light fixtures at the vanity block access to the mirror.

    Very nice stay.

    Reception staff was very friendly and helpful as were the valet parking folks. Room was nice, could’ve used a sofa but that’s minor. Good location, really no complaints. Will be even better when COVID restrictions are lifted but I felt very good being there.

    Great weekend stay

    A great hotel. Rooms are large, beds comfortable and the hotel quiet. The staff is incredibly nice and accommodating. Great location near Dupont Circle and the West End and walking distance to Georgetown stores.

    Was much nicer than expected. Nice big clean quiet rooms. Great location. Was there for family trip so didn’t spend much time at hotel. Adjoining room for the kids was great. Don’t know what the “resort” fee is for since there is nothing there even if it were open. As it was due to covid the restaurant (the only amenity that I could see) was closed. Many options right outside. It was a good choice and would stay there again without hesitation.
